Here we go, here we go, Friday the 16th August KO. 20.45 at the Stade Yves du Manoir the first match of this season’s TOP 14, Montpellier the Magnificent take on R. C. Toulon winners of the last  H Cup and Finalists in last seasons TOP 14, loosing to Castres and just missing out on the double which has only ever been done by Stade Toulouse. A Goliathon task for the home side, Toulon with their plethora of stars from all over the World are again looking to be on the very top of the honours list, but Montpellier have had their own signings, some are not yet present, like Rene Ranger, Robert Ebersohn or Sitaleki Timani, others are present and have already integrated well, and everyone is expecting great things, Big Jim Hamilton, Anthony Tuitavake, or the French stars Nico Mas Lucas Dupont , Jonathon Pelissie not forgetting Mikeal Ivaldi or Robins Tchale-Watchou is this not a mouth watering Gala start to this seasons TOP 14, the LNR and Canal + seem to think so as  it is the only match on Friday evening to be played and televised, and so it should be.
Montpellier possible contender for honours this season, against the premier favourite for this season’s silverware, General Galthie’s soldiers are ready and waiting, brilliant!!!  The match is a complete sell out and there is only standing room (pesages) left if you have not already purchased the only place to be on Friday evening. Two great teams trying to finalise perfection for their performances for Friday one mistake and it could be all over the dream start to the season. NO PRESSURE BOYS BRING IT ON !!!
